SEVERAL

I guess that this is 
more or 
less how "to be continued"
feels—

before,
the sound 
of your voice 
was less important 

to me than the 
sight of your body. 
But now, as my own

creases 
multiply 
and deepen, 

things tend 
to work better
the other way around.

Now, when I 
write this 
stuff down, 
I usually begin 

with the excellent
(but sensitive)
premise 
that you exist 

in order 
to speak
to me—at best,
a pretty 

severed 
head. I'm almost 
always 

stuck for a 
satisfying ending,
though, but let's 

face it—fairy tales 
have endings,
pony tails

have endings,
conversations—like knives,
just have ends.

And what's an end
really? but  
the latest 

in a series—
of severed 
connections.
